Wondering if it’s time to see a podiatrist?

A podiatrist is a medical specialist that can prevent and treat conditions, diseases and injuries that impact the feet and ankles. So, our team can be a huge benefit if you are dealing with foot or ankle issues. We want you to feel like part of our family when you're in our office. Our San Leandro, CA, podiatrist Dr. Zeindelin Ahmad, always strive to provide a listening ear and custom, thoughtful care that meets your needs. So, when can you benefit from turning to our team of skilled, friendly and caring podiatrists?

You’re Dealing with Pain

Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. If home care isn’t improving your symptoms or your pain is severe and impacting your daily routine, you owe it to turn to our podiatrists for answers. Foot or ankle pain can happen for several reasons, and it’s our job to find out what’s causing your pain. We offer the latest advanced laser technology, including the MLS Laser, to treat acute and chronic pain, swelling and inflammation most often caused by arthritis, sports injuries, neuropathy and tendonitis.

You Have Diabetes

If you have diabetes, chances are good that you understand the impact that this chronic metabolic disorder can have on the health of your feet. You also want to have a podiatrist that understands the complexities of diabetes and how it impacts foot health. Not only does our team provide routine checkups, but we also offer medical pedicures, prescription shoes and diabetic wound care.

You’re Dealing with Toenail Fungus

Fungal nail infections aren’t just unsightly; they can also cause severe damage to a nail. Unfortunately, over-the-counter fungal infections typically aren’t effective enough to entirely kill the fungus. Why wait to get the proper effective treatment you need? Not only can our San Leandro, CA, podiatrists provide effective topical and oral medications to treat fungal infections, but also we offer the GenesisPlus. This laser treatment is effective for treating persistent or severe fungal infections.

You’re Interested in Acupuncture

When you think of a podiatrist, the first thing you think of probably isn’t acupuncture; however, our San Leandro, CA, team also has a licensed acupuncturist onboard. Tennsi Hsi practices acupuncture right here in our office and can treat many conditions, including musculoskeletal problems; however, acupuncture can also be incredibly effective for alleviating chronic foot pain. If you are dealing with chronic plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures, turf toe, bunions or metatarsalgia, acupuncture may benefit you.

If you are dealing with foot and ankle problems that require expert care or diagnosis from our San Leandro, CA, podiatrists, call Foot Doctors of the East Bay at (510) 483-3390 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmad.

When your feet are bothering you, it can lead to serious consequences if not treated promptly. Podiatrists are uniquely qualified and experienced at treating foot problems. Your feet are the main support for your body when standing, running, or walking. Keeping your feet optimally healthy is vitally important. Dr. Michael Stein and Dr. Zeineldin Ahmad from Foot Doctor of the East Bay, our podiatrists in San Leandro, CA are specialist foot doctors. A second office is located in San Leandro, CA.

What are some common issues of the foot that should be treated immediately?

The foot and ankle complex is just that - quite complex. Below is a list of some common issues that a podiatrist can diagnose and treat. These are all conditions that require prompt attention to prevent them from progressing.

  • Bunions: These are caused by a dislocation of the big toe joint and can cause a protrusion on the inside of your foot where the big toe joins the rest of the foot. If not promptly addressed, they will progress and surgical intervention may be needed.
  • Hammertoes: Hammertoes occur when the toes have bent unnaturally, and can also lead to rearing surgery to fix them if not treated immediately.
  • Ingrown toenails: Usually, this one is an easy fix! Proper attention to your feet and footwear can usually adequately treat this condition.
  • Neuropathy: Neuropathy occurs when there is damage to nerves and circulatory vessels leading to the foot and can cause significant pain or numbness of the foot. Neuropathy is commonly associated with diabetes and is a condition that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. In very severe cases, it can lead to a need for amputation of the foot.
  • Plantar Fasciitis: This is an inflammation of the plantar fascia that runs along the sole of your foot. The plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue that provides significant support to the feet and when it is damaged and not functioning properly, significant pain can develop.
  • Trauma to the foot or ankle: If you sprain your ankle, drop something on your foot, or have an injury to the foot as a result of another type of accident, consulting with a podiatrist (foot doctor) in San Leandro, CA is warranted.
  • Plantar warts: These are caused by viruses that infect the skin of the foot. They may go away on their own, but you should see a podiatrist to accurately diagnose this condition and determine the best path forward for the treatment of warts.

Schedule a consultation with us

If you have pain in your feet that does not resolve on its own after a few days, make an appointment with Dr. Stein or Dr. Ahmad from Foot Doctor of the East Bay by calling (510) 483-3390. Our foot doctors, both podiatrists in San Leandro, CA, are experienced and skilled at treating the conditions listed above, and more.

Know the signs that it may be time to see a foot and ankle doctor.

Did you know that the average person walks the length of the earth five times by the time they turn 80 years old? So, to say that our feet and ankles do a lot for us every day is certainly an understatement. If you are dealing with foot and ankle problems it’s important to recognize when you may need to see one of our San Leandro, CA, podiatrists Dr. Michael Stein and Dr. Zeineldin Ahmad for care. Is it time to consult a podiatrist? It might be you are dealing with:

Nail fungus

While toenail fungus can happen to anyone, we tend to see the majority of cases in older adults. Unfortunately, this problem isn’t always easy to treat, particularly because over-the-counter remedies often aren’t as effective as we would like. Since untreated or improperly treated fungal infections can permanently damage the nails it’s important to see a podiatrist here in San Leandro, CA, to prevent the infection from spreading.

Persistent heel pain

Heel pain is often the result of inflammatory conditions such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis, which will often go away with ample rest; however, if you are dealing with recurring or persistent heel pain that lasts for several weeks you could be dealing with chronic plantar fasciitis or something more serious that requires imaging tests and expert care.

Diabetes

If you’ve been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes you must have a podiatrist that you can turn to for regular care. After all, those with diabetes are at an increased risk for nerve damage, ulcers, and infections, but our podiatrist team can provide you with the preventive care you need to prevent diabetic foot complications.

Bunions

A bunion is a common foot deformity that can cause persistent foot pain, swelling, and trouble walking. While bunions are often genetic there are other factors such as wearing tight shoes or high heels that can also increase your risk. The sooner a bunion is diagnosed the better, as we can provide you with a variety of simple at-home strategies to prevent the bunion from getting worse. If caught early enough surgery is rarely necessary.

Our San Leandro, CA podiatrist is here to treat everything from diabetic feet and arthritis to heel pain. Give us a call at (510) 483-3390 if you need a foot specialist.
